Remember I mentioned about being shortlisted for tHe Spring Ambassador Hunt?
So today is the day… I woke up, got myself prepared, reminded myself on what to say during the interview, reached there, got a script, tried to memorize it, chit chatted with the other shortlisted contestants while waiting for my turn and I turned out to be the second one to go in coz I’m the second person to reach there.
The script was so short, easy and simple, it’s a piece of cake! I used to memorize stuff longer than this.
Talking in front of the camera was nothing to me. For those that follow my blog long enough will know that I did quite a number of video projects with my friends few years back, even did the filming in public places with tonnes of complete strangers looking at me, you can find the videos in my blog, related to Borneo Highlands and Kuching Festival. Links are available in the comment section.
Today, there were only a handful yet I was so nervous -.-”
Talking in public was fine with me, as long that I’m well-prepared but…
I screwed up big time in this second interview. -.-” I forgot my lines. I requested to redo 3 times or so(if I’m not mistaken). In fact, I could just use my own words but some how my mind was blank… BLANK! Ish… Ish… Ish… The judges were kind enough to let me refer to my script. It wasn’t very smooth too, I was too nervous! At least I managed to complete the key points. However, the last sentence that I made up myself was a bit odd due the the word usage because I suddenly couldn’t think of the appropriate word or sentence structure that I should use. Told you… I was so blank.
Then, I’m asked to do it in Mandarin. I thought I can do it, I asked the judges to give me time to phrase my words but… ARG! I forgot my Mandarin. YEA! What the heck, right? I used to do Mandarin speaking videos last time, there were no script at all, well… Not in grammatically correct Mandarin but still I could get the message across.
Today, I could only manage to come out with 1st sentence and got myself stuck in the second sentence onwards. I even requested to redo it twice but not successful. I forgot all those terms in Mandarin.
Good thing they didn’t ask me to do in our national language, I would end up with similar situation ;p Furthermore, I’m extremely rusty with it.
How silly I was?
I even prepared myself with what I want to tell the judges but forgot most of them that time. Luckily one of the judges reminded me of one of the thing I want to bring up but still… Didn’t manage to get all the points across to them.
One of them asked me whether I’m nervous or not, I admitted it. *LOL* Hell yeah! I was so super duper nervous else why I ended up like that!?!?
I shouldn’t be like that! Why am I so nervous and tensed? All these are nothing compare to what I had done before. Maybe it’s because this is a contest whereby people will be judging me so I was quite self-conscious until I forgot everything.
Oh well… What’s done is done, can’t blame anyone but myself. Say so much also no use hahaha… We’ll see if I still manage to be one of the top 16. Chances are very slim but at least I had fun and this is one interesting experience.
If I’m not mistaken, I’m the oldest there ;p
To my supporters, sorry to disappoint you people. Thanks for the supports *muaks*
